“When people first look at Kwik they think: ``Wow, a nice tool for children's books and games``, but that is not the only thing that Kwik is good for. Kwik is also for FAST applications prototyping and proof of concept apps, to show to potential clients in record time.”Larry Meadows
Jam Exam Premium gives you access to 186 (and counting) Lessons / Scales, split across 3 instruments. Jam Exam is a great learning tool for string Instrument players.
Jam Exam App includes Major (and the relative modes) Major Pentatonic, Minor Pentatonic, and Minor Blues with more scales being added all the time some free and some as in-app purchases.
Other user defined settings include: Left Handed Player Display on/off Display Intervals on/off. Audio on/off Set the duration/scroll of each screen.
The Jam Exam App is designed as a practice tool for guitar, bass and Ukulele players with more instruments to be added soon.
Much more than one of the hundreds of “Scale Encyclopedias” available, exciting soloing and skilled improvisation requires study of scales.
Jam Exam presents the scales in a fun and exciting way. If you are studying stringed instruments either privately or on your own, you should find this app to be great value to your studies!
Once the app is downloaded, the user can choose to either:
Manually scroll through each scale stopping on the scale position where they want to practice.
The user can set a timer that will count down to 0 and will automatically change the scale to another one.
The next scale will be in the same key but in a different position on the neck.
Working this way enables the musician to work on mechanics while training their ears, hands and eyes to the positions on the neck.
Each key has a unique backing track to play along with in a variety of styles, ideal for students and teachers of stringed instruments.
The Free Version of the App displays the scales in the key of C. Scales Available: Major (and the relative modes) Major Pentatonic, Minor Pentatonic, and Minor Blues with more scales being added all the time.
How did Kwik help?
When people first look at Kwik they think: “Wow, a nice tool for children’s books and games”, but that is not the only thing that Kwik is good for. Kwik is also for FAST applications prototyping and proof of concept apps, to show to potential clients in record time.
Kwik helped by allowing us to create a FAST working prototype of the application. Including button clicks and screen navigation. This allowed us to create a working model and show our new partner (JimHickeyMusic.com) our design concepts.
What are your favorite features?
Kwik also gave us the advantage to create images for, both, higher and lower resolution devices. All at one time, making it much easier and faster for us to spin out our application.
Although we haven’t used Kwik for every programming task (like database support etc..), Kwik is an awesome tool to use for prototype and create your shell of your application in record time.
Any tips and tricks to share?
Start with your highest resolution and let Kwik do the work for you. Kwik gives you an advantage over all other tools by creating the multiple images size variations.
